the finest to be found anywhere. His
sweet potatoes are famous in the town
of Laurens. Besides these things Mr.
Donnan raises cattle, sells beeves,
milch cows, milk and butter; raises fine
mules and never patronizes Western
markets for anything. In short, he is
a farmer who succcods.

Old Timers Caught.
It is nobody's business to be up, or
dinarily, at 3 o'clock in the morning,
especially Sunday morning, except the
officers whose duty it is to maintain
peace. But it so happened that two old
negroes, Primus Downs and Green
Hands, became so interested in a little
game they were having Saturday night
just out of town, that they forgot
themselves until a couple of officers
came along, returning from a little ru
ral trip, and reminded these old timers
that it was 3 o'clock and about
time to call the game. Both were
placed under arrest and told to appear
for a hearing. They were not playing
for fun either, not these inveteratea, for
they had the mon on the board as well
as the cards. Seventy-six and sixty
arc their respective ages.
